you say that like it's a sacrifice for him.
and he was worth every pennyHe never took a salary as governor either.
didn't say it was a reason to vote for him.
Those two aren't mutually exclusive.
It's not too late...celebs could come out and pledge all of their income to charity during Obama's second term.I'm still curious why so many people hate rich politicians and love rich celebrities. It would have taken a whole new direction if Obama had thought of it. Poor sap...
Now, if Romney REALLY wanted to piss off the left a little more, he would come out and say, "I don't play golf...so you don't have to worry about that. And, the wife and I don't need to go traveling all over the world or spend Christmas in Hawaii with our extended family and friends. I'd be happy just staying close to home where we don't have to send 30 SS agents ahead to clear out a hotel for us. Camp David will be just fine for our getaways. Besides, I don't plan on taking much time off...you see, there's a lot of problems here that need fixing and, if elected, it will be MY job to fix them. It's hard to do your job if your not on the job. I learned that a long time ago...it's a value I picked up while creating successful businesses and helping save those that were about to collapse. So giving up my presidential salary is only part of my "re-investment" in America's return to greatness. The other part is being present to do the hard work that will be expected and required of a successful president."
